A strong team from the BISP RPT Tennis Academy, part of British International School, Phuket (BISP), flew up to Bangkok last weekend (27-29 November) for a match-up against players from Harrow International School Bangkok.
The Under 9 squad took 6 out of 9 possible medals; the U11 and U13 sides competed well and conducted themselves with respect; while the Under 15s won both Boys and Girls titles.
Academy Head Coach Lee Austrin was pleased with the results, and commented that, “It’s great to see how far the kids have come in such a short space of time.”
Academy Director Jeff LaMantia, who also accompanied the trip, added that, “It was great to see our players playing like mini professionals and conducting themselves with sportsmanship.
“They made BISP and their coaches proud, with the older students taking a leadership role in supporting our younger students both on and off the court. All our tennis players were great ambassadors for BISP and RPT Tennis.”
